Integrate the Different Aspects of Your Psyche & Develop a Centred Space for Making Real Choices
Voice Dialogue and the Psychology of Selves enables you to recognise, understand and embrace the selves (the most discrete units of the psyche) that make up who you are.
When you realise you've become over-identified with one or some parts of yourself (such as the Pleaser, Rational Mind, Psychological Knower, Pusher, Critic, Lazy Self, Rebel), and you've suppressed or simply aren't aware of other parts (maybe your Vulnerable Inner Child, Selfishness, Being Energy, Spontaneous Self, Playful Self, the Romantic), you open the door to new choices and experiences, growth and healing.

“Voice Dialogue is original and brilliant”
Hi, I'm Astra
I’m a Voice Dialogue teacher and author with 30 years experience doing this consciousness work, and have trained directly with Voice Dialogue's founders Drs Hal and Sidra Stone.
I created this website as a resource for people to learn how to use Voice Dialogue - one of the most empowering personal growth tools available - in daily life.
You'll find explanatory material on key concepts, posts on how to transform relationships, help with the challenges of child-raising, as well as information about various selves such as the Pusher, Inner Critic, Business selves and Vulnerable Inner Child.
You can get my Introduction to Voice Dialogue ebook FREE for an example of how you can apply Voice Dialogue in an everyday situation.
“We consider Astra Niedra to be an outstanding teacher, trainer and facilitator of the Voice Dialogue process”
What is Voice Dialogue?
Developed by pioneering psychologists Dr Hal Stone and Dr Sidra Stone, Voice Dialogue is a method for giving voice to our various selves – also referred to as ‘inner selves’, ‘parts’ and ‘energy patterns’, and include archetypes.
Your selves might include a Knowledge Seeker, Pleaser, Responsible Parent, Rational Mind, Inner Critic, Perfectionist, Vulnerable Child, Playful Child, Rebel, Spiritual Seeker, Couch Potato, Adventurer, Romantic, Good Mother, Caring Father, Angry Mother or Father, Anxious Child - or any other self you can imagine.
The process of connecting with, embodying and directly dialoguing with our selves allows us to realise which selves we've become identified with, why those selves took charge and how they keep us safe, and then which aspects of ourselves have been rejected or hidden.
Through the Voice Dialogue process we gain understanding and acceptance of our-selves. As our awareness grows of how we've come to identify with particular aspects of our psyche, we begin to make space for our rejected selves and the gifts they have for us.
This process, which involves embracing opposite selves, along with their conflicting perspectives and feelings, leads to growth in consciousness.
It results in the actualisation or restoration of balance and harmony, with a connection to a centre within ourselves from where we can manage the array of selves / energy patterns that inhabit us.
And when we see how our selves influence our relationships, then we can solve all kinds of relationship and parenting problems, allowing us to feel more love, connection and growth in our life and relationships.
This work is deeply transformative and healing, and can be used together with any other modality or practice that promotes self-awareness and consciousness.
